Garden - Hot water 24 hours - rooms with private bathroom
Our hotel is located in Colca canyon - Cabanaconde , only 15 minutes from condor cross, our hotel has 200 square meters of garden and patio for relaxing - lodge style.
La casa de Santiago is at 5 hours from the city of Arequipa, in the village of Cabanaconde.
It’s an intimate place that fits perfectly into its natural surroundings. La Casa de Santiago has a beautiful garden with views of pre-Incan terraces and the Andean peaks that form the Colca Canyon.
What our guests most love is the sensation of being surrounded by nature.
It’s the perfect place to forget the tiring journey and all your problems.
We recommend sitting in our terrace and simply enjoying the calm.
And for those who like to listen to bird song, simply lying back in our hammocks.
Here, the chirping of birds announces the arrival of morning. It’s not an exaggeration to say that this improves your mood and raises your spirits.
La Casa de Santiago was built to be in harmony with nature. The roof of our main dining room is thatched with straw using techniques practiced for centuries by indigenous Peruvians.
This is an ecological type of roof that provides natural insulation so that when the temperature is high it is cool inside and when it’s cold outside it’s warmer inside.
All the wood used for the roofs is from trees we have planted and harvested, which guarantees that no deforestation has been caused. For every tree we have used, we have planted five.
Recycled wood has been used for the tables and chairs.
All the armchairs are made from synthetic fibre not from animal skins.
The hot water you’ll use comes from solar-heated tanks.
We are idealists who believe that living in a sustainable way we can help combat climate change.
All the rooms have a private bathroom with hot water, and all have a view of the garden and the mountains.
